Product Information

Hostas are one of the best perennials here in UK gardens, forming mounds of attractive, often colourful foliage, which is topped with sprays of bell-shaped flowers in summer.

Growing virtually anywhere, and particularly valuable for those awkward shady spots, they are available in a wide range of colours and forms to suit any garden.Also known as Plantain Lilies, Hostas are great for filling gaps in beds and borders, and they also look fabulous planted up in patio pots and containers seperately for a more formal look.

Their attractive foliage creates interest all year round and their stunning, often fragrant flowers really wow in the summer.They love the sun but will perform just as well in the shade - they're a great choice for planting underneath trees and shrubs in dabbled shade, acting as great groundcover plants.

We've put together a great collection for you, featuring three of the best types (and some holders of the RHS Award of Garden Merit) in a good selection of colours to give the best display in your garden, whether in the border or in pots.

This collection includes a mixture of 3 varieties:

Hosta 'Blue Angel'(AGM): forms a clump of wavy-edged, large blue-grey leaves. Bell-shaped, pale lavender-white are produced from June. One of the largest and most reliable of the Blue hostas. H75-80cm (30-32in) W90-120cm (35-47in).

Hosta fortunei var. albopicta: has broad, creamy-yellow, heart-shaped leaves with contrasting green margins. Mauve flowers are borne on leafy stems in July. H45-55cm (18-21in) W80-100cm (31-39in).

Hosta 'Wide Brim' (AGM): heart-shaped, puckered dark green-blue leaves with a cream margin. Pale lavender flowers in June-July. H40-45cm (16-18in) W80-100cm (31-39in).

Please note that we reserve the right to substitute varieties, depending on seasonal availability.

Top Tips

For best effect, plant where your hostas receive full sun for at least half of the day, but protect from midday sun. This will encourage the best leaf colour.

Care Information

  • Before planting, incorporate plenty of organic matter into the soil. Hostas prefer a rich, moisture retentive soil.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the root ball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the football.
    The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Keep plants well-watered and mulched with well-rotted organic matter.
  • Hostas can be grown in any container in a good, multi-purpose compost. Ensure that they are kept well-watered. Pot-grown hostas should be fed monthly with a general-purpose liquid feed.
  • Protect from slugs and snails.
  • If you find that your hosta is suffering from scorched leaves, move it to a shadier, more sheltered position.
